With so much to consider when planning your wedding, it can be easy to overlook the finer details which could enhance your big day. Sound and lighting is one such aspect, often disregarded as an extra cost. However, crystal-clear audio during the speeches or musical entertainment and an ambient or celebratory atmosphere achieved with beautiful wedding lighting can be the difference between a good wedding and a great one.
Offering a bespoke approach to each of their couples, Flipside Sound System supplies professional sound and lighting equipment to ensure your wedding is one to remember.
Flipside Sound System, which is partnered with RedLine DJs & Entertainment, covers London, the South East and further afield with an extensive equipment portfolio. This includes PA systems, staging, microphones, smoke and haze machines and light-up letters, as well as a sound system and audiovisual design equipment specifically for churches.
James Cooper, co-founder and managing director, says: “It may be viewed as a luxury add-on but the correct sound and lighting equipment helps to create a seamless and enjoyable wedding reception.”
“Lighting can add a level of intimacy to larger venues or if you’re outside, it can create an atmosphere,” James continues. “Sound is more of an overlooked area. Traditionally it is thought that a wedding DJ or band will provide the sound or lighting equipment, which is true a lot of the time, but even when they’re bringing their own equipment it might not be suitable for your venue.
“As professional and experienced sound and lighting engineers, we have a huge inventory of equipment that means we know how to cater for all those different spaces. Our speakers are discreet and can blend in with the venue décor. Our equipment also guarantees high sound quality with better coverage, so the wedding music and speeches are audible all around the room and no one is straining to hear what is being said.”
Professional sound and lighting also allows you to hold your wedding exactly where you want it to be held. Whatever your wedding – whether it is in a grand or intimate setting – Flipside Sound System has a solution for you, having worked in many weird and wonderful wedding venues over the years.
Weddings held outdoors, such as in a marquee or open space, can prove difficult when it comes to sound and lighting, but Flipside Sound System is perfectly placed to ensure your outdoor wedding is just as you envisioned it. From simple lighting and wedding decoration additions such as festoons and fairylights, to larger installations such as floodlights, moving heads, spotlights and uplighters – not to mention sound system hire, Flipside Sound System has everything to meet your needs.
What’s more, the bride, groom and their wedding guests need not worry about anything failing to run smoothly on the day. James says: “We can provide engineers who can look after things throughout the time Flipside Sound System is required. They can control the lighting as the night draws in or pass wireless microphones around the tables for the speeches. They can even arrive in specific dress if required. With decades of experience, we will make sure that your wedding has all of the equipment and skills it needs to be truly magical.”
